And at 155bpm he needs to put a bit more effort in
The funny thing is that I’d only sprinted for 30s, it’s a really steep uphill I was doing an interval on.

Theoretically I could do even better.

But where is the Annual KOM, is that a thing of the past? Or is it only for bike rides?

Eh? It says it is 200 metres at 6.7%! :whistle:

(Round here you might get 200 metres at 6.7% to get you to 500 metres at 12.8% which then leads you to 867 metres at 21.4%, and then you'd go round a bend to find a b*st*rd steep ramp! :laugh:)
Ramp ends with a sign showing Steep Incline.

I know they did the annual KOM a year or two ago but since they faffed about with their interface a few months ago I haven’t a clue what they are up to now.

Annual KOM didn’t really make much sense to me. You could go out at one minute past midnight and hold onto it for a few hours but what does it really gain?

Ah - running - yes, that probably does feel pretty steep on foot! I never liked running up hills (or down them - it hurt my knees).
If it’s 6.7% that must be average, the path is like an exponential graph. :heat:

Uh the Strava segment goes up to 15.2%

I got pushed up that climb by former British road race champion Sid Barras once! :laugh:

It was a group ride but I was so slow that the other riders had got to the summit when I was still only halfway up. Sid came back down to look for me, did a u-turn, and stuck a hand on the back of my saddle. He instantly increased my speed by about 50%! :notworthy:
